New England Patriots (football team)
Program is divided into two halves: the first consisting of a group interview with five African American football players from the New England Patriots, the second of newsmagazine-style segments. Guest host Tom "Satch" Sanders talks with Ron Boulting, Mac Herron, Reggie Rucker, Sam Cunningham, and Leon Gray about their education, the violence of the game, preparing for a career after football, and the need for young players to recognize the value of an education (given the odds against playing professionally). Additional segments include "Community Access" (on home improvement loans, lead poisoning, and requesting a housing inspection),"Blast from the Past" (with an excerpt from a 1970 interview with actor Raymond St. Jacques on Hollywood's prescribed roles for African American actors), the "Community Calendar" (with community and cultural events listings), and "Commentary" by Producer Marita Rivero on the need for African Americans to vote.
